NECK DEEP cover ‘Torn’ for upcoming. ‘Songs That Saved My Life’ compilation – out Nov 9th on Hopeless Records.
Speaking of their version, frontman Ben Barlow says, “This song is a classic for a lot people; it’s actually one of my girlfriend’s favourite songs ever, so we’ve listened to it a lot. It clicked that we could cover it one day when we were on tour, eating somewhere and it came on the radio. We started singing along and quickly realised this would make an awesome cover, once we’d ND’d it.
We recorded the song with my brother Seb, and the video rolled round a little while later. Once again we teamed up with our buddies at OWIG and aimed to recreate the original video, but with an ND twist. We scrapped the love element and instead opted for more comedic value. Alongside that, we have a slight narrative where I’m constantly interrupted by the life that goes with being in a band, with me cutting a frustrated figure.
It also features some cameos from some of our closest friends in the ND unit! It was a lot of fun being able to cover such a well-known song. Shooting the video was a breeze and as always the OWIG team nailed it.”
